"After Rui Knopfli, Sebastião Alba and Craveirinha, José Luís Carlos Patraquim (born in 1953 in the then Lourenço Marques) is probably the biggest Mozambican poet.
Patraquim has a well calibrated poetic art, able to write very expressive and almost expressionistic short poems, verbally dense and unpredictable with an effective bet in imagery. These are poems that can be accessed only thorugh their verbal force, also anchored in an almost ritualistic repetition and a remarkable sense of rhythm." Pedro Mexia
